  I have 120gb 7200 rpm seagate drives in two of my RAQ2s, both are 
running netbsd 3.0.  I also have a 200gb drive in my other RAQ2 running 
debian.  There doesn't seem to be any limit to the size of the drive 
you can use other than power requirements.  I did a manual install on 
the two running netbsd 3.0 though, so I can't vouch that big discs will 
work with the auto-install cd.  I used the install script as a 
reference from the netboot cd though and I didn't see anything in the 
script offhand that would not work with large discs.  If all else fails 
try doing a manual install if you have an extra unix machine to host 
the nfs-root.  I just followed the instructions off the netbsd webpage. 
It wasn't a hard install at all plus it got me motivated to learn about
